Parcel delivery: an update on ongoing disruptions linked to the Coronavirus/Covid–19

The fight against the Coronavirus / Covid-19 impacts the work in warehouses, sorting centres, transport and distribution of parcels. Find here the updated point on the various networks.

n the context of the collective fight against the spread of the Coronavirus / Covid-19, Cubyn has chosen to continue its activities.

Aware that we all have a responsibility and a role to play, we have decided to provide storage for free for essential products during the crisis. This applies to:

  • necessities, health, hygiene, and food,

  • new merchants and those already at Cubyn,

  • until at least 15 june 2020.

We have adapted our organization to effectively protect all our teams and deliver the best possible quality of service in this context. As parcels are not a vector of contamination, as transport continues to operate and as no country has closed the entry of goods, it seems logical and useful to us to maintain this possibility.

Parcel delivery

Cubyn warehouse and head office

Due to a significant spike in demand, our warehouse may have to prioritize certain stock entries and shipments. For some, this will result in slight processing delays.

Our Customer Support must also prioritize the tickets by having 1 to 2 days of treatment on the non-urgent ones to respond within the day to the most important ones.

  • Head Office : Some delays may occur on non-urgent tickets

    • ✅ Web app: OK - Full-service

    • ✅ Customer Support: OK - Full-service but some delays on non-urgent tickets may occur

    • ✅ Tech Support: OK - Full-service

    • ✅ Account Management: OK - Full-service

  • Cubyn warehouse : Some delays may occur

    • ✅ Inbound orders: OK - Full-service but some delays may occur

    • ✅ Outbound orders: OK - Full-service but some delays may occur

    • ✅ Storage capacity: OK - Full-service

  • We do our best to protect our teams and ensure maximum service

  • We remind you that the virus only lasts a maximum of 3 hours on cardboard or plastic, so there is no risk of contamination with the packages

Shipping networks status

Thanks to the combined use of several carriers for each delivery mode, we continue to cover areas inaccessible to some carriers. No notable change since April 7.

If you are wondering how we manage to maintain the service when other logisticians are closing down Standard shipping or entire zones, we invite you to read this article.

The huge backlog in carriers networks linked to the stores re-opening in France is still increasing. We are in a Christmas-like period without the usual preparation. For example, some carriers will not accept new parcel this Wednesday due to network saturation. There are hundreds of thousands of parcels on hold on the carriers networks.

Cubyn Standard is the most affected because Colissimo is the most impacted network. We will dispatch the parcels according to the progress of each carrier.

Number of new Cubyn parcels in backlog @Colissimo each day

At Colissimo, the problem is becoming particularly acute. We are optimizing shipments to make maximum use of the capacities of other carriers.

To "manage" their backlog, carriers don’t scan the parcels at reception. The status is still « Shipped / In Transit » at Cubyn but carriers tracking pages show no data information.⚡️

  • Cubyn Standard FR : Full-service with very high disturbance

    • Restricted areas: none but very high disturbance with significant processing delay. We will dispatch the flow according to the progress of each carrier. ⚡️

  • Cubyn Express FR : Full-service with very high disturbance

    • Restricted areas: none but very high disturbance with significant processing delay. We will dispatch the flow on carriers like Chronopost, DHL, Colis-Privé and TNT-FedEx. ⚡️

  • Cubyn Relay FR & INT: OK - Full-service

    • Restricted areas: none - gradually reopening.

  • Cubyn Standard INT : OK - Very low impact
